Mobilizing Communities to Access Better Housing and Infrastructure Under Rajiv Awas Yojana
Given its previous experience of supporting implementation of Rajiv Awas Yojana ( RAY) in Ahmedabad, Delhi, Bhopal, MHT was aware of the challenges in the implementation of the program in Ranchi, and the importance of continued involvement for community mobilization and technical support throughout the implementation process. MHT thus approached RMC to discuss avenues to meaningfully engage in the implementation of the program. In, April 2015, RMC nominated MHT as the project management consultant (PMC) to support the implementation of RAY in five slums in the city. MHT was to undertake community mobilization, construction monitoring and project reporting under this agreement at no cost to RMC.
